Today In TV History

In November 1953, Disney approached United Paramount Theaters, now owner of ABC Television Network at the time, with the idea of building an amusement park. Already rejected by NBC and CBS, Disney is offered $0.5m, plus $17m raised against collateral of ABC’s property holdings. In return, ABC receives a 35% stake in Disneyland, a share of concessions revenue for 10 years and gains access to Disney’s animation library. Disney also agrees to produce a weekly one-hour television show for ABC. The result, this is the very first episode of the Disney anthology television series, ‘Disneyland’, ‘Walt Disney Presents’, ect. It premiered on October 27, 1954.

Alert: You Are Now Naked! Ads Sync Inaudible Sound To Your Devices
Surreptitious cross-device tracking is now searching your movements, your questions, your life. In an article by Dan Goodin wrote in ars Technica (111615), there is a new threat that uses inaudible, high-frequency sounds to surreptitiously track a person’s online behavior across a range of devices, including phones, TVs, tablets, and computers. Earwitnesses now can say you are being tracked!

The ultrasonic pitches are embedded into TV commercials or are played when a user encounters an ad displayed in a computer browser. While the sound can’t be heard by the human ear, nearby tablets and smartphones can detect it. When they do, browser cookies can now pair a single user to multiple devices and keep track of what TV commercials the person sees, how long the person watches the ads, and whether the person acts on the ads by doing a Web search or buying a product.

Cross-device tracking can be performed through the use of ultrasonic inaudible sound beacons. Compared to probabilistic tracking through browser fingerprinting, the use of audio beacons is a more accurate way to track users across devices. When a user encounters a cross-device tracking advertiser on the web, the advertiser drops a cookie on the computer while also playing an ultrasonic audio through the use of the speakers on the computer or device. The inaudible code is recognized and received on the other smart device by the software development kit installed on it. Some also embed audio beacon signals into TV commercials which are “picked up silently by an app installed on a device unknown to the user. The audio beacon enables companies to know which ads the user saw, how long the user watched the ad before changing the channel, which kind of smart devices the individual uses, along with other information that adds to the profile of each user that is linked across devices.

The user is unaware of the audio beacon, but if a smart device has an app on it that uses the software development kit, the software on the app will be listening for the audio beacon and once the beacon is detected, devices are immediately recognized as being used by the same individual. The only factor that hinders the receipt of an audio beacon by a device is distance. There is NO way for the user to opt-out of this form of cross-device tracking. The users have no knowledge of which apps are using this technology. As of April of 2015, software is used by 67 apps and the company who provides this cross-tracking, monitors 18 million smartphones. Is your smartphone one of them?

The marketers who use this cross-tracking assemble a shockingly detailed snapshot of the person being tracked. The Center for Democracy and Technology wrote in recently filed comments to the Federal Trade Commission, “For example, a company could see that a user searched for sexually transmitted disease (STD) symptoms on her personal computer, looked up directions to a Planned Parenthood on her phone, visits a pharmacy, then returned to her apartment. While previously the various components of this journey would be scattered among several services, cross-device tracking allows companies to infer that the user received treatment for an STD. The combination of information across devices not only creates serious privacy concerns, but also allows for companies to make incorrect and possibly harmful assumptions about individuals.”

“As a person goes about her business, her activity on each device generates different data streams about her preferences and behavior that are siloed in these devices and services that mediate them,” CDT officials wrote. “Cross-device tracking allows marketers to combine these streams by linking them to the same individual, enhancing the granularity of what they know about that person.”

The FTC has scheduled a workshop on Monday to discuss the technology.

Brain Dead
Bloomingdale’s, once a bastion for superb display and advertising, has hit the low mark in advertising copy writing. One can only imagine who wrote this, who edited this and who approved this. It certainly could not have been done by anyone who should be aware of how wrong this actually is.

International Box Office
James Bond dominated the Chinese box office this weekend as it opened with $48 million for the Friday-Sunday weekend, a record for a non 3D U.S. film. The Chinese launch has pushed the ‘Spectre’ worldwide gross to nearly $550 million, led by $140.7 million in the U.S. after 10 days. In China, ‘Spectre’ is only $11 million short of the entire run of ‘Skyfall’, which was $59 million in 2012. Its opening day gross of $15 million on Friday set four other records for China, the biggest Friday opening any 2D U.S. film; the biggest November opening day; the biggest Bond opening and the biggest Sony Pictures opening day of all time. The film which reportedly needs $650 million to break even, will be profitable. The only question is how profitable will it be? And, will it beat ‘Skyfall’ box office?
